Its sad to let it go but the fact is that most of us are hardly affected by this company.

This company makes Euros 2000+ costing phones, (I know they're for the exotic stuff), and most of us will never own one in their life time... isn't it?

Vertu will adopt android now, and outsell my favorite brand Nokia. I'm so disappointing in Nokia. I'm an Nokia n9 user and its awesome but the apps and quality of it sucks big time and the support as well. I'm a 13 year Nokia fan, it's time to go to Andriod or Apple, and not Windows phones.

vertu should've been bought by blackberry. Then it would've sell like hot cakes.... "luxury + top notch security" aah.... all the aristocrats would've gone for it.
